It breaks down to rock dust which contains lots of nutrients and minerals in a long lasting form. You should also research vermiculite as a soil amendment which can slow leaching of nutrients in sandy soils, retain moisture while providing aeration and regulate soil temperature.

J31,J33,J36,J40, amber, all chempajacks including cheena,

Mike did you mean j 30?

My j 31 has tons of latex. Taste fine and produces a lot but it has plenty of latex

Is your tree grafted?

My J31 seedling has no latex if pick tree ripe

Sprawling growth habit like CC.
Ive let the tree fruit heavy again for second year so it hasn’t got to much growth time.
Fruit has been clean without spraying.

Venus has dropped a few but still loaded with green fruit, the taste has been exquisite, like a late season oversized Orange sherbet.

Echo Farms sold me a J31 seedling that has turned out to be an excellent easy peel Jakfruit, the taste is banana foster x bubblegum, Ive made some more room to trial out another 2 seedlings from this tree.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: How do you fight papaya fruit fly?

Lara farms claims to have guava variety with thicker skin that makes it resistant to fruit fly, this may hold true for some varieties of papaya? Solo and red lady varieties have proven non resistant here.

They are very problematic for guava, surinam cherry, papaya and can even get into sapodilla, best option is bag the fruit you wish to eat while its green.

Isan Indigo seedling flowered at 6 months from seed


Couple Thai Lessard seedlings flowered at 6 months also but  I think 2 years from seed is average.

The seeds I grew from Thai variety have all produced similar tasting fruit, the main variance being size of fruits. Its a great variety with chewy flesh.

First  sops of season starting to ripen up now, trees are flowering also, maybe another crop later in the year?!
